    Dear Tom:

    My husband was looking at your products and started to laugh at Mr.
    B's serious little face.
    I could not get Mr. B out of my mind and made this little illustration.
    He looks like a great cat!

    Rebecca also enclosed the following
    poem to her illustration - both of which we
    post with THANKS and with her permssion -

    "“Hello! My name is Mr.B.
    I’m a serious cat.
    I’ve got mittens and know how to use them."

      I'll check with Rebecca but I'm pretty sure she would be thrilled! I would buy several of those as well, in any color combo Mr. B chooses. Fun!

      thanks so much for the permission.
      So more on this project a bit later then. :-)

      I think that the drawing look quite nice on a rapidwinder either on the front off to one side or on the bottom like a maker's mark on a piece of china..

      I am SO glad I have waited (OK, procrastinated) to buy some more softies.

      Have wee or not-so-wee? Both?

      Wow..... I'm on one!

      I noticed the website says you'll be making softies from this in `09. Any hints on the color & when they'll be available at this point? I just happened to have purchased a new body that will be needing a release.

      it will be Mr B tabby-yellow...our anodiser is testing the colour
      so pls stay tuned.

      just wondering how the Mr. B softies were coming along?

    10. T&T and Mr B 67 months ago | reply

      Planning to have them ready this month.
      100 Softies are ready to be anodized & engraved.
      Our engraver Henley just opened his own business
      and is getting all the bugs out so we are about
      a month later than originally planned.

      That's great news!! May I have two? :-D

    12. T&T and Mr B 67 months ago | reply

      Yes of course.Thanks! Have just marked your name on the Mr B list which is growing "rapidly". :-)

    13. K. Praslowicz 67 months ago | reply

      I wish to be on the exclusive list as well. I have a bad weak spot for animals in Victorian clothing.

    14. T&T and Mr B 67 months ago | reply

      OK. Thanks. Have added you too to Mr B list. Pls note that not the whole suit will be in the Softie.
      It will look like this but on Tabby yellow
      "Mr B Softie"  - in the works

    15. ~ Nando ~ 67 months ago | reply

      The tabby-yellow may match well with the yellow lettering on black lenses.

    16. T&T and Mr B 67 months ago | reply

      Good point Fernando,
      you are of course on the list already! :-)

    17. e_pics 67 months ago | reply

      Put me down for a couple! Rebecca will be thrilled, as will I!

    18. T&T and Mr B 67 months ago | reply

      you and Rebecca are of course already on the list. :-)

      Do you think you'll ever have more of these? I really really want to get one. :-D

    20. T&T and Mr B 49 months ago | reply

      thanks for asking. It was a unique limited-editonSoftie. Equally as unique as Mr B (Barnack)
      whom we miss every day.
